Radical Practice – A Lecture by Marlon Blackwell, FAIA
November 16th, 6:00 PM
Brock Recital Hall, Samford University

Tickets Available HERE

Marlon Blackwell will discuss his architecture and design process and will introduce Radical Practice: The Work of Marlon Blackwell Architects, a new monograph released in June 2022 by Princeton Architectural Press. Both the book and the lecture emphasize projects in the public and civic realm, emerging from outside the established centers of architectural culture, illustrating the distinct and original voice of Marlon Blackwell Architects. Their iconic and award-winning designs span across typologies, scales and budgets by merging the universal language of architecture and the particulars of place. The lecture will discuss the richness of the work, its methods and its consequences. It will also suggest an open-endedness to the practice’s trajectory and interest in what a “radical practice” can be in the contemporary moment. Radical in its fundamental simplicity, the assertion of the making of buildings is a core principle at the heart of the practice.
